TMCC Foundation receives $300,000 from local charitable organizations


Funds will provide monumental support to TMCC students and programs

During the 2011 holiday season, the Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC) Foundation received $300,000 from the Nell J. Redfield, E.L. Cord and Dorothy Towne Foundations to assist TMCC and its students in continued educational success and development. The funds, which were donated within just two months, will be used to support the college’s scholarships, instructional equipment, professional development and capital needs.
“We are tremendously grateful to local organizations such as Nell J. Redfield, E.L. Cord and Dorothy Towne Foundations whose generosity has helped make the educational experience at TMCC remarkable,” said Sean French, president of the TMCC Foundation board of directors. “It is because of these organizations that the college is able to provide students with unparalleled programs, instructors and technologies, which contribute to the increased strength of our region’s workforce.”

Established in 1982, the TMCC Foundation is the fundraising division of TMCC. The foundation provides monumental support to TMCC by actively seeking partnerships with individuals, businesses and organizations interested in leaving a legacy at the college. Each year the TMCC Foundation raises funds through its annual fund campaign, employee giving, special events and grants awarded by individual, corporate and private foundations.
